UT: Luxury cinema and dining debuts in La Jolla


#1

#2

My feeling is that this concept will fail - too expensive, La Jolla doesn’t have much foot traffic at night/evening and I doubt that so many people are interested to spend money fir exoensive dishes when watching a movie


#3

Lived a block away from the old Jonathan’s, don’t know how this will fly.
La Jollans are a thrifty bunch of characters.

Good for a first date…


#4

Also skeptical of the LJ location. But they’re apparently opening another in Liberty Station. They may end up calling it the FakeName Theater because I’ll go so often.


#5

That was my first impression, too - especially given the relatively new ArcLight theater at UTC and the upgraded AMC theater. I think these people must have done some research, though.

When I was in town last weekend I saw the old La Jolla Landmark theater being knocked down. That actually made me sad. That easily was my most attended theater - alone, dates with my girlfriend / fiance / wife, etc.

I hate going to the movies but if they show Caddyshack, Blazing Saddles or a 3 Stooges marathon, all Curly (dream man), text me anytime and I’ll fly off the mountain or the island, ASAP!!

Question tho’: why wouldn’t you just buy a non-alcoholic drink and bring a flask?

You like, totally could!!!

You could, like, totally bring your beer bong from lik,e springbreak ;;;))))

Like I totally for sure would BUT my mother in law took my Beer Bong and I won’t see her till November, while were at the Cloister’s for holiday…
She brings it to her Keg Standing classes and the kids just love it… :beer: :black_joker:
